Abstract

Autoimmune diseases vary in a wide range from mild to severe, intractable diseases. A great development of the therapy has been encountered in the past decades, in particular of formerly incapacitating diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn's disease. While biologic therapy, in particular monoclonal antibodies, offered most new solutions in these disorders, the therapy with many conventional drugs has also been rewritten. Old drugs, such as cyclophosphamid or intravenous immunoglobulin, retained their position in severe forms of autoimmunity. An evolving new area of stem cell transplantation offers benefit for the most severe patients suffering from intractable autoimmune diseases.
